you have to change it on media player on a computer then put it on the phone
there isnt a media player on this phone.only a music player an u cant do it on there
You can have your own songs as ringtones. You need to change them to AAC files which can be done on media player or by downloading a converting program. These can then be set as ringtones.
New phone bought to replace LG5400 that had a deceased powercell( cant get replacement!! boo hoo) MP3 files are just too large to set as ringtones on this phone, but what would you expect from a mid priced phone. cant fault it. way round getting your old ring tones(polyphonic) onto the new is send them from your old using a mms and then extract the sound on your new. Easy.
"decent" and "ringtone" don't belong in the same sentence.
i'd say that bluetooth or i-mode are the only options.
i bluetoothed an mp3 once and it wouldnt play due to some encoding error. hello, mp3?
- 25 MB shared memory .... an on my phone is 13.312 Mb Maximum shared memory...How come?
Can't use mp3's as ringtones, well how about this I downloaded a Polyphonic ring tone only to find out (you've guessed it) it isn't compatable with the phone!!!!!
Go on then, tell me exactly how to set an mp3 as a ringtone. I bet I can't on my phone and suspect it's the way that O2 have screwed about with it. There are absolutely zero ways of selecting an mp3 as a ringtone.
i have one of this..and you can set an mp3 as a ringtone..my ringtone is an mp3..:) why are you saying that you can`t..if you can`t that means you don`t now how to use a phone...:) i think is a good phone is not expensive ..is light..and pretty..
What is the point of an mp3 player on this phone? I see no practical use for it at all.
Mine is an upgrade on O2. The phone has no headphone jack, only a mini-usb jack. The box comes with no headphones or even a handsfree earpiece. And O2 don't sell them. I've not seen any mini-usb headphones on sale in the high street. And www.samsungmobile.com doesn't even list my phone on their site, so I can't get any service for the product at all as I can't choose my model.
So it seems the only way to hear them is on the speakerphone. Which won't be when I'm walking around town, but maybe at home when I have my hifi or computer to listen to them on (doh).
I managed to fill up the generous 13Mb memory with a huge FOUR mp3s. One of them it wont play at all (yes I checked the encoding etc). The only way to get them on the phone is bluetooth (no probs there) as you don't get a cable with the phone. I'm guessing that the Samsung PC Suite or whatever it's called would have one. But then it probably won't work on a mac as there is no mention of mac anywhere on their site, either for it or not, so my guess is 'not'.
As the mp3s are "music" and not "sounds" I can't apply them to a favourites folder or as any type of ringtone - I wanted one of them as my morning alarm call.
And there is nowhere to plug in extra memory, so you're lumbered with the useless 13Mb on board. The O2 upgrade came with a "512Mb memory stick" maybe I had misread that as "card". Silly me.
Apart from this stupid and pointless application (can't even delete it from the phone & use the memory for more worthwhile stuff like photos or whatnot), I like the tactile feedback, menu layout and overall operation of the phone. It is a bit 'small' so my hands/thumbs get tired quickly when texting.
you can record longer video what you do is go to the menu, click camera, click record video, click options, click setting and changed the video size from 176X144 to 128X96 now the samung s401i can record videos longer.
how the bloody hell do you put tunes on it.ive got the bluetooth dongle.but cant doo it.when i did it only held 3 songs.surely this cant be it
this phone sucks im selling mine on ebay at least ill get a beer out of it
